New Opportunities2020 Georgina Sweet Awards - now open
The Georgina Sweet Awards for Women in Quantitative Biomedical Science were created by Professor Leann Tilley as part of her Australian Research Council Laureate Fellowship program to promote and support female scientists who demonstrate excellence in the area of Quantitative Biomedical Science.
Quantitative Biomedical Science is Biological/Biomedical Research that employs a quantitative approach, particularly in areas such as Computational Biology, Biophysics, Bioinformatics, Biochemistry, Genomics, Structural Biology, Cell Biology etc.
Two new awards were established in 2016:
Georgina Sweet Award for Women in Quantitative Biomedical Science:
Four awards of $25,000 each will be made to Australian female researchers who demonstrate excellence in the area of quantitative biomedical science.
In 2020, an additional two awards of $25,000 each will be made for Excellence in Inclusivity, recognising Women in Biomedical Science who have a strong track record in research and who have demonstrated the importance of inclusion and diversity. Applications for this year’s award will close on 31 May, 2020. The Flinders internal closing date for this Award is 17 May 2020 for a completed final draft application.
